The SIU athletic department unveiled the schedule poster for football this year on Facebook earlier today.
As a reward for garnering 1,000 'likes' on Facebook for the new Saluki football page, the department unveiled the schedule poster that features seniors MyCole Pruitt, Tyler Williamson, Thor Hadfield, Blake Miller and Malcolm Agnew.
SIU senior Terrence Walker designed the poster, which can now be picked up at Lingle Hall inside SIU Arena and at area businesses.
Not in Carbondale but want a poster? Here's what you do. Buy a mailing tube from the United States Postal Service at least 18 inches long and pay for the postage to ship it to SIU athletics and get it returned. Insert a sticker with your return address and the prepaid postage into the tube, which will be used to mail the tube back to you.
Also include a slip of paper that says you want the SIU football poster for 2014. Then mail the tube to Saluki Athletics Marketing, SIU Arena 118, MC 6620, Carbondale, IL 62901.
SIU opens the season Thursday, Aug. 28, against Taylor University, an NAIA opponent, at 7 p.m. at Saluki Stadium.
